PietersiteBlue Pietersite

Pietersite is also known as tempest stone as it is a stone that carries a charge, a little like a storm raging within it. It brings cleansing energy to aid you to create change.

This is a crystal that is very stimulating to your energy field, and helps you to let go of unwanted habits and negative ways of living your life.

It has a strong vibration that makes an energetic connection to your deeper spiritual inner self.

This crystal aids shamanic journeying, and is a stone that encourages you to understand you are a spiritual being.

It helps you to access spiritual guidance, and allows you to look further than where you are now, to see the big picture. This utilizing of the power of your imagination to dream, and to create beautiful visions and ideals is very powerful.

Where Is It From ... Pietersite Meaning

This stone was first found in Namibia and lately it has been found in China. The meaning of its name relates to its finder, the prospector Sid Pieters, and it was named for his father Louis Pieters. 

It has a mixture of colors within the stones, and some stones have quite beautiful and unusual color combinations.

These crystals often exhibit amazing shades of various colors, in mixtures of brown, gold, blue, grey, black and clear almost colorless areas.

A Strong Spiritual Vibration That Aids Change

This crystal is known to energize your mind and mobilize you to action, by bringing high vibration energy from the higher realms in via the third eye chakra.

Pietersite unites the third eye and the solar plexus chakra, the seat of the will. This stimulates you to be willing to do what you need to do to achieve change in your life.


You may notice that when you first use it that you can feel it working on removing blockages, yet at the same time you may quickly find that you experience a state of altered awareness. This awareness aids you to recognize the beauty within yourself.

I personally found this happened without even having to meditate with it, as it centers you to your own spiritual inner being. 

This stone has a strong spiritual vibration, and connects you to a place deep within you, where your own internal guidance system is located.

For me this was an immediate connection to my heart chakra then through to my thymus chakra, yet its not actually working on those chakras when it does this.

It is simply centering you and grounding you to your own spiritual being, (not to the earth). A deep, strong, useful vibration!

Wearing Pietersite

The meaning of the word imagination is sometimes misunderstood, as some people think imagination is not real. Imagination can be utilized to bring reality into alignment with your desires and is quite a potent force.

What you imagine can be achieved, especially when you are in the spiritual realms in meditation.

Spirit will react to what your mind 'pictures', and this visionary ability is stimulated using this powerful crystal.

It aids you to go where you desire, if you use your imagination to guide you.

Pietersite jewelry comes in a variety of colors, and the jewelry made from this stone may be very attractive and unusual depending on the colors.

Wearing this stone will move the growth of your psychic abilities forward as well as helping you to understand personal power issues. 

This is a beautiful stone to wear and you will find it on the list of zodiac birthstones. It is an Aquarius birthstone, so birthstone jewelry may be available made from this stone.

Why Would You Use It

By connecting you to your inner guidance system, this stone is very helpful to aid you to do what is required to live your life in alignment with what spirit wants you to do.

You become aware more easily, once you make this inner connection to yourself, of what your future could be.

This helps you to achieve what is required to live an authentic life.

Pietersite helps you to rise above any feelings that have allowed others to control you, as you start to see when someone is not speaking the truth to you. 

It is common for many of you to be manipulated by others, and its often hard to see this.  This stone opens you up to an understanding of what is happening around you and to see the conditioning that has been used to get you to conform to others expectations.


Awareness is power and you regain your power by making a connection to the solar plexus also known as the power chakra chakra.

As it is the seat of personal power, it helps you to take back your own power where required, and it helps to boost your willpower as well. 

It is also quite stimulating to the base chakra, and it may energize you to overcome fear. 

This energy helps you to gain a greater ability to make decisions, and to step forward into an authentic life.

Connects To Your Internal Guidance System

If you can't get jewelry it is beneficial to keep a piece tucked in your pocket, as it will aid you as long as you have it within your auric field.

Sleeping with it under your pillow is also interesting. I find it makes my dreams seem almost real. It helps you when you are making shamanic journeys, and is a stone that assists you to appreciate that you are a spiritual being, able to access spiritual guidance.

The charge that Pietersite carries is the reason why it is also known as tempest stone. This cleansing energy that it embodies is helpful to help to create change.

It helps you to discover how to use your imagination to dream beautiful visions and create a better life using this ability. It has an excellent vibration that makes a strong connection to your internal guidance system and stimulates your will power. 

How To Use It

This is an excellent stone to use in meditation, as it stimulates the third eye chakra, which is known to help you to be open to develop your intuition and utilizing the intuitive insights that come through to you.

When you buy a new stone or crystal, it is advantageous to use it on its own first. Once you are fully aware of its energy, you may choose to combine it with other stones.

Combine stones for short periods to begin with, as individuals may react differently. Knowing how you can combine various stones may be helpful, as this allows you to get the most from your crystals, and may help you to solve specific problems in your life.
